"The Biggest Loser" coach Jillian Michaels held nothing back in an interview with Women's Health magazine for their May issue.
Amidst chatter about Michaels' career plans, the television personality revealed more intimate details about her dating life as well. As she "candidly" told the magazine, Michaels does try to find time for dates - with either men or women. "I've been in love with both," she said.
Pregnancy, on the other hand, is one thing that Michaels doesn't have time for. She told the magazine that when it comes to kids, she'd rather adopt.
The article notes that Michaels admits to having an aversion to pregnancy because she was overweight as a child; at the age of 12, the famous weight-loss coach weighed 175 pounds.
"I can't handle doing that to my body," she told the magazine. "Also, when you rescue something, it's like rescuing a part of yourself."
That's somewhat how Michaels, 36, envisions her career path, rescuing the overweight and obese from an unhealthy life. She's currently producing another weight-loss show called "Losing It with Jillian," where she gets to leave behind some of the bad cop persona she's perfected on "The Biggest Loser."
"It's about rebooting your life," Michaels said of the show, which will have her move in with a family in need for a week to help rid them of every source of dysfunction in the house.
As her business partner Giancarlo Chersich explains it, Michaels is poised to become the go-to health and wellness person. "You've got Oprah in lifestyle, Martha in home, Rachael Ray in food, and Suze Orman in finance. There's no one in what we call ultimate wellness," Chersich said.
So in addition to her weight-loss books, workout DVDs, diet supplements and her television programs, Michaels is also looking to move into daytime TV with her own talk show in 2011. "By the time I'm 40, the hope is that I'll be solidly in daytime television and producing the various other experts we've brought along the way," she said.
